Terracotta wall tiles
Architecture and design have always intersected and expanded by invading and sharing spaces and projects. But architecture and design would not mean much without the hand of generations that make and produce. This is make, the new product line by S.Anselmo, aimed at satisfying alternative design requirements through the proposal of emotional materials and products. Make is the expression of a timeless architecture that even though is contemporary, is able to transversely connect production methods and emotional designs both from a time and a space perspective. Make supplies the conceptual idea and it pushes it until it becomes a limitless invention. It also represents the product that can be “made” in every sense as it’s not yet complete but it’s realised through handmade techniques passed over generations and time. Terracotta, through make, is projected towards other frontiers highlighting the characteristics of simplicity and naturalness that become the exclusive look of our new collection.
Comfortable, relaxed, pleasing: this is the translation of the Japanese term raku, the technique used to make karak tiles and there could not be a better description for these clay tiles that express harmony through their simplicity and naturalness in shape. Each karak tile is a piece of art completely handmade and based on ancient manufacturing and cooking techniques. Colours, sometimes iridescent and brilliant, and sometimes opaque and pale, contrasted with natural blacks obtained in the cooking process and embedded in original shapes, are characteristic signs of a product that has been transformed into cladding and decorative materials offering elegant and alternative solutions.
Karak tiles are pieces of art in itself but it can become a real unique piece by developing tailor made patterns, designs and geometries that represent the distinct character of each client and each project.
